However this doesn't always work in my script. Now, I've googled how to find the position of an element. And come accross many scripts which supposedly all find the position of any object. Some are very long scripts and some are very short all using a variety of methods. Incidently none of which work, they all return (0,0).
I am trying to dynamically find the position of an anchor on the page. I have a page where you can get to the anchor in the normal way (http://www.mypage.com/index.html#anchorname), but there is a script on that page that adds fields dynamically. This causes IE to lose the place where it was supposed to scroll to (via the anchor).
After the fields are added, I want to rescroll to the location of the anchor. Here is the code that I have running on the page. Code:
I have generated menus from an XML file. The XML also defines sub menus that are to open when the mouse is over any one of the menus.The menus are div tags with text in them. The location of each is based on the order that they added in and the width of the text with some padding.When the users mouse moves over the menu item it should pop up a sub menu at a relative position to the menu item.How do I get that position and width of the menu the user is over if it has never been set explicitly? Is there a way or not? If not what is the best solution for something like this?

I have a question, why would someone create a script to do what one line of code can do? Am I missing something.
I am hoping you can help me. I am finding this problem rather complex to solve. I need to be able to find the surrounding text at the mouse position. For example, if a user clicks on a word in a paragraph, I need to programmatically know what the text is surrounding the click point. The text in question is not just content text, but DOM elements read in as text rather than the DOM element itself. For example, if a user clicks at the word "This" in the following:
<table><tr><td>This is good</td></tr> then I would like to know how to get the text "<td>" just before the "This" as text, not as a DOM element. Furthermore, how can I "enlargen" the scope of my capture, such that I can programmatically get the "<table><tr><td>" part as well as the "is good</td></tr>" part?
Question 1 ---------------- I am writing an advanced BBCode system for my forums and I would like to be able to find where the cursor was positioned last in the text so I could insert the BBCode there.
Question 2 ---------------- Again I am writing an advanced BBCode system for my forums and I would like to make is so that when someone puts in a [b] tag it goes bold, so kind of a WYSIWYG editor and also for other things like [img] tags and [url] tags. So could someone tell me how to do that. I would preferably like it to still use the textarea tag, or at least a form component so my existing code works.

#navigation li is the parent element, which is positioned relative.The ul element above that is also position relative. I previously tested a click function and was able to confirm I was getting the correct position back, so now I just need to set the CSS property correctly for all of those links.The reason I want to do this is I have a set of links that appear over a photo of a city skyline. When you hover over those items, I want them to be given a background image that is a blurred and lightened version of the same photo so it needs to line up (sort of like the tabs are made of frosted glass).
I have a HTML file that has a lot of content. In it I have a <div id="d1">somecontent</div> block. Would it be possible for me to know the position of this d1 (absolute or relative) displayed on the page / window if not setting it first ?
I have a div, which can be anywhere in the document. I want it like, when I click anywhere on the div, it tells me the X, Y of the mouse in the div. Like X mouse - X div (left) and Y mouse - Y div (bottom). So that I know the width and height of the mouse according to the div. Is it possible or cross browser?
I have a div which wraps a table. Initially, the div's display attribute is "none", basically I need to find the height of the table in the div, and use that information to render the div to the user. The div is rendered only on the users request.
It also really needs to be at least Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera proof.
Title doesn't really give this thread justice ... I have a content div with an image and text included into it. This same div class is being used multiple times. What I want is to be able to click the image, and have the <p> in that div toggle to show or hide. Here is the XHTML code for the front-end:
<div class="content"> <img src="image_big.gif" alt="image" class="toggle_font" /> <p> Caption for the next image. </p>
How would I access the source of a webpage? I would like to get the source, then use a regexp to find text on a webpage. For example, retrieving a counter, or some other text that dynamically changes. I'm implementing this for firefox.
right now, i have a web page opening that contains that info, but i would rather have a pop up alert() that shows that info.
where the selectors and their opening braces, their closing braces, and declarations are each on their own lines (always), how can I replace a specific declaration (line) given a unique selector and a declaration property. For example, if I wanted the 'color' declaration property line in the 'bar' class changed.
At the moment I'm iterating through the CSS one line at a time looking for the selector and then looking for the declaration property (before I hit the closing brace).
